I recently matched my Hyatt diamond to Kimpton inner circle. This generally requires 15 nights a year and since my Hyatt Diamond trial membership was about to expire I figured I'd go for it. What initially drew my attention to Kimpton was an influx of positive reviews that I got from people who stayed with them. From what I've heard Kimpton does an excellent job in providing a very personalized experience. As I was perusing their website i noticed that they have a program where they offer inner circle members a free night and 50$ dining credit at any of their new hotels - no strings attached. A few days after having my status upgraded to inner circle level i called about this benefit. I was able to book a night at the Hotel Monaco in Philly and the Donovan House in DC. Ill let you know how those 1 night mini trips turn out. For the price (free) you cant really beat it.
Edit: Please see my review from the Donovan House
